SANTA PAULA, CA – When it comes to fruits and veggies, knowledge can be key to selling classic products such as those that occupy the produce aisles. So Limoneira has launched a brief, informative video promoting the benefits of lemons to shoppers.

John Carter, Director of Global Sales, Limoneira“Lemons are among the healthiest and most accessible products people can buy from any market,” John Carter, Limoneira’s Director of Global Sales, said in a press release. “That’s really the best part – lemons are so easy to integrate into everyday lifestyle.”

Hosted by the Founder of Healthy Grocery Girl® and spokesperson for Limoneira’s Lemons for Life™, Megan Roosevelt, the video shares a number of reasons why an apple isn’t the only produce item consumers should have once a day.

Naturally Restore the Body’s pH Levels

According to Limoneira, lemons are alkaline-forming in the body and aid in restoring balance in a body’s pH levels.

Fight Infections and Colds

With a high concentration of Vitamin C, lemons work to fight and prevent colds and a number of infections.

Detox the Liver

Yes, lemons flush out toxins throughout the body, but they also work to stimulate and detoxify the liver specifically.

Strengthen Blood Vessels

How does this citrus source help treat high blood pressure? The bioflavonoid can help strengthen blood vessels and prevent internal hemorrhage.

Reduce Inflammation & Pain

Lemons are a strong and natural dissolvent of uric acid. This helps reduce pain and inflammation in the joints, as well as prevent inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis.

Anti-aging Benefits

The Vitamin C in lemons helps to neutralize free radicals, which have been linked to both aging and disease.

Regulate Digestion

By increasing the production of the digestive juices, Lemons can help regulate digestion more efficiently.

Potential Anticancer Properties

Lemons are high in antioxidants, potentially protecting cells from mutating into cancer cells. This property may also help slow the growth of cancer cells.

Lower Cholesterol

Lemons are a good source of pectin, which Limoneira explains is a soluble fiber that protects cardiovascular health.

Prevent Kidney Stones

By upping consumption of lemons, consumers can raise the citrate levels in urine, which can help prevent the formation of future kidney stones, calcium deposits, and gallstones.
